A lively and fun Spirit that will change your perception of blended Bourbon for the better.
Bardstown Bourbon Company is an amazing thing to behold. It is a remarkable facility recently expanded to produce six million proof gallons of Spirit per year — making it one of the largest distilleries in the world. But it is also a gleaming, modern building with sharp edges, having some of the most advanced technology for great Whisky-making.
Founded in 2013 with production hitting full stride in 2015, they started by filling their rickhouses with sourced Spirits to support their construction. With massive amounts of product pre-sold out into the future, they are the central production for dozens of famous brands — including Jefferson’s, High West, James E. Pepper, and many more. But they carve out a selection to release under their own brand as well.
Bardstown Bourbon Company will be a significant force in the industry for generations to come.
The secret to this Bourbon is the word "fusion." The distillery has adopted that word for a series of blended Bourbon releases. But it’s not all marketing spin. Each release in the Fusion line will be a different combination of their in-house Spirits and sourced ones. So each will have a different flavor profile.
Bardstown Bourbon "Fusion Series" #1 is 42% high rye and 18% wheated from their inventory, each just over two years old. This is married with 40% high corn Bourbon sourced from nearby. The flavorful blend is bottled at a toasty 49.45% ABV, yielding a light-bodied Whiskey that retains a deep flavor profile. A lot of blends out there are "meh." This one is lively and fun with character.
